For OutOfSyllabus, our video series on how leaders stay ahead of the curve, we usually interview entrepreneurs or top executives. This time, it’s a bit different.

Politics can be as hectic as business. We spoke to Priyank Kharge, the minister for IT, BT & Tourism in Karnataka about how he gets the best out of his time, the books he reads and his passions for this episode of OutOfSyllabus.

Kharge, the youngest minister in the Congress led cabinet in Karnataka, is on a mission to make Karnataka a bigger destination for startups and tech companies. He faces stiff competition from neighbouring states.
